Tony Scott: A man of action films, pure and simple

No one ever mistook Tony Scott for a great dramatist. He was a director critics loved to hate for his slick barrage of images at the expense of story. The filmmaker did not dazzle the imagination with visions of lost or alien worlds, like brother Ridley Scott.

Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, By Manning Marable

The global fame and iconic posthumous stature of the man born as Malcolm Little may seem anomalous, even inexplicable.

World of Warcraft's online players are up in arms after Blizzard Entertainment, the company that created the game, said that fans would henceforth have to use their real names on its discussion forums. One angry poster has complained that a new girlfriend (he wishes) might come across his "closet gamer habit" by Googling his real name.
